turbo/ebpv problem-need help!!!!!!!!

I need some help please!!!!!!!!!!

I recently bought a 97 powerstroke-my first diesel.

the guy before me removed the valve from the ebpv valve housing, the actuator is still there on the pedestal mount.

my turbo is now shot.

should I rebuild the turbo or replace it?

should I buy a non-ebpv valve pedestal and a "hollowed out" outlet?

should I try and find the valve and hook the ebpv valve up the way its supposed to be?

thank you.

For the EBPV, get the blank pedestal and outlet. Waste of parts to put it back in.
If you're turbo is now shot, depends on how shot and what turbo it is, and if you plan to mod later or not. Any pics of it?
btw

Well, here's what happened.

I pulled my camper Friday, coming back empty I was getting a lot, and I mean a lot of smoke out of my tailpipe.

I was told by a friend that it could be my turbo.

I pulled off the rubber hose, and grabbed the impeller shaft, and I can move it at least a 1/4", maybe more.

There's oil all over the tube that runs at an angle under where the ebpv outlet is (sorry, I don't know what the tube is called)

When I finally got the truck to start, I cannot hear the turbo "whining" no matter what the rpm.

I can only assume that is the stock Garret turbo.

If you don't want to rebuild it I would call Ron's Turbo service in Utah. Most of the time when there that shot it ruins the housing. Ron has all the goodies to get you out the door. I personally for keeping the EBPV, but it's your call.

Sure sounds like the seal let loose and journal bearing fried.

Do you have any plans for upgrading or do you tow all the time?

Yeah the question is do you want a stock replacement, a 1.0 housing, or a d66. I'm running a 1.0 and a IC and don't have any hot issues. I didn't even have trouble before the IC.

Stock is fine with me, I just want to get my truck running again! lol

But I am going to be pulling a 10,000 pound camper.

If I'm to keep the ebpv, do you have any idea where I can find a new outlet with the valve? I've looked quite a bit online today, and I can't find anything.
All I can find is people saying to remove it.

I heard about Ron's on an earlier site that I looked at. Would it be cheaper to have it rebuilt by him, or just buy another one?

Thanks

Ron ain't going to rebuild it. It's trashed. It's like having a grinder loose in there. Strictly Diesel has a rebuild kit for the base with a new piston, seals, clips, ect. It's a $100 bucks. A new stock turbo from ton is $540 and a 1.0 which will spool up sooner is $640. Mine builds boost at 1200rpm.

how cold does it get where you live? the only thing the ebpv is good for is warming up the engine in cold weather
